If you are looking for a unique mountain getaway experience, you have found it! This is the place where family quality time, fun and memories will be made. This immaculately maintained 4300 square foot, 3 level, newer custom log home will meet and exceed your expectations for a mountain vacation.
The home is located in Catawba Falls Preserve, a gated mountain community preserve with paved roads located just 8 miles (15 minutes) from the town of Black Mountain and 23 miles (30 minutes) from Asheville. The community backs up to the Pisgah National Forest and is the home for an abundance of wildlife including black bear, deer, turkey, birds and many other animals.
This home is set up perfectly for 2 families or multiple couples to vacation together. There are two king master king bedroom suites on levels two and three. Each master suite has a large jacuzzi tub, double granite sinks, and a walk in shower. Bedroom 3 on the upper level has two twin beds with a full bathroom and is a perfect bedroom for the kids. Bedroom 4 on the lower level has a queen bed, a sofa and one twin bed. Bedroom 5 on the lower level has a queen bed. The home can accommodate 11 adults comfortably in beds. Much of the house cabin decor was acquired locally in Black Mountain and Asheville.
The property is very quiet, peaceful and private and sits on 2 acres with breathtaking views all around. The deck wraps around with plenty of seating and relaxing in the hammock and swing chairs. There is a large back deck for entertaining with a hot tub, picnic bench, BBQ, table and chairs and loungers. This is the place for relaxing and enjoying the long range mountain views and listening to the sounds of nature.
The game room is where the fun is! You will love entertaining and watching the big game here with a pub style wet bar featuring a pool table, ping-pong, 2 arcade games, TV and shuffleboard.

Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain: After living in South Florida for 20 years, we searched for an escape up in the mountains. We built this custom log home in 2007 and vacationed in it for 2 years. We enjoyed this incredible lifestyle so much that we decided in to move to Asheville in the summer of 2009. We briefly lived at the lodge and really enjoyed it. We have since opened a medical office in Asheville and need to be close to the practice as well as the kid's school. That is the reason we have now decided to offer this incredible property for others to enjoy. We know you will love this property and the breathtaking mountains as much as we do!
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge: Bordering a vast forest preserve, Catawba Falls presents gated acreage homesites with stunning views of the Pisgah National Forest. You'll feel a thousand miles away in your mountainside dream vacation home, yet you'll be minutes from the culture and conveniences of Asheville and Black Mountain. There are numerous hiking trails, streams and rivers, and waterfalls nearby. Wildlife is abundant in the Preserve. The most common animals that you may encounter are deer, wild turkey, rabbits, birds, fox, and black bears. Of course, there is absolutely no hunting in the Preserve.
